>Madan no ? to Vanadis anime to be directed by Takuya Sat? (Steins;Gate) at Satelight
>Airing in October
>Kaito Ishikawa will play the hero Tigre, while Haruka Tomatsu will play the heroine Ellen.
>Absolute Duo Anime Announced
>To be done by 8-Bit
Why is every single LN from MF bunko J pure shit? Almost every book that came from this label focus on "selling the heroines", but all the stories have literally retarded girls or ones that just want dicks with stereotypical personalities.
>Blonde hair blue eyes from the UK
As much as that's my favorite archetype ever, I can't help but sigh at how cookie cutter this shit is. I await the day where an LN that's not a copy of another gains widespread popularity.
To watch them and see if they're just as bad as I think they are. If you watch things with an incredibly cynical attitude then you always win because either you'll always be right about it being total shit, or it'll turn out that it's actually good and be a pleasant surprise. It mainly applies to the generic harem genre.
>?Blaze?— That is a weapon made by materialising your own soul with your enhanced will power. I, Tooru Kokonoe, have that ability which is said to be possessed only by one in every one thousand people, so it was decided that I would enrol in Kouryou academy that gives out ?Blaze?, and a school that teaches battle techniques. But for unknown reason, my ?Blaze? didn’t have a shape of a weapon but a protector, and it takes the form of a ?Shield?.
So what's interesting about this? Premise sounds pretty by the text (boring). If 8-bit's doing this I expect some CG, are the swords mechanical or something?
>It's MF Bunko J, of course they're harems.
Are you sure about that?
So it finally did get a damn website. Took it fucking long enough.
>That image is the entire site so far
At least NGNL's site had tons of concept artwork when it went up and a neat background animation system.
>Ludmira's skirt is not transparent.
Well the preview art there looks nice, but I wonder what sort of budget they have for frame rates, and how the animations are.
Pray for smooth animation.
Absolute Duo just sounds like another generic 'unique MC' High School harem with a typical unbalanced cast.
First 3 novels are translated however.
In the book the magic is made possible by nanomachines so another magic.
Absolute duo is just your usual school setting, this MC try to avenge for his family, met the main girl who also want to revenge for her late father.
Vanadis is about a young ruler of a small land that being caught in chaos who can only use bow.
I have hope for Vanadis. It is high fantasy only with harem. Action and plot heavy though.
The computer budget is the only thing I worry about with Vanadis, it looks to be all CG so we have to hope they can render enough to make the action not seem like bad video game crap.
It's not as obvious on Tigre and Ellen, but Mira and Sophie especially have some cg going on. Though I don't think the image should be taken too seriously since Olga is there and there's no way they'll get to her.
It jumped out as CG to me because of the amount of detail in the shot. Too much shading and detail in the weapons, along with color variety.
It is either a shot from a CG opening, a preview shot or they plan to use them in the anime itself.
It does look like good CG from that only, but you can't judge it until it moves
>anime original plot guaranteed
That's not funny even as a joke.
Just accept it anon, whether you like it or not the anime is going to do the whole civil war arc, the first 5 volumes, in one cour so it's going to take bits and pieces from here and there and toss it together.
Except that would be a fucking terrible adaptation because it wouldn't accomplish anything.
Trust me the anime is going to adapt the entire civil war, whether that's trying to force it all into one cour and living out shit like the volume 4 invasion shit entirely or doing two cour, it's going to do it.
They're announcing a Tsuki Tsuki anime a day late as a surprise, right.
One has to wonder, if they're just writing English words, wouldn't it be simpler to just write them in English to begin with?
Hey, did you forget the start of the series? Brune and Zhcted were having a border dispute or something. It's how Tigre became a prisoner of war.
And for the majority of the series being civil wars, there's only been 3 of them, right? Brune's giant one, Zhctd's Sasha against Elizaveta (and with Valentina plotting), and the whole Asvarre succession conflict.
If they made fucking Blade Dance 1 cour where it ends before the titular tournament starts then I have no hope for Vanadis.
Assuming its only 1 cour where else could they possibly end it? They would have to go lightning speed to do Civil war. The princess is introduced during the invasion so skipping it would be impossible.
You know where they would end it.
To be fair, a lot of the Japanese alphabet is the same character, just with two lines or a circle next to it. Example: ?/?/?
To make up for this lazy alphabet, they have to memorize a fuckton of kanji. Their writing system is so inefficient it isn't even funny.
Which we all know will eventually end up with Tigre being in control no matter how it looks at any point. There's been way, way, way too much foreshadowing of Tigre becoming a king.
>wakes up at noon
>only wakes up early to hunt
>leaves most of the work to the Vanadis
He'd be just slightly better than Robert Baratheon
Amnesiaarc wasn't bad.
>She could be fleeing from normal bandits or some shit instead.
Author probably realizes a princess's guards aren't going to be incompetent enough to lose to a ragtag team of bandits, or at least prevent them from chasing her without a good, good head start.
Full plate armor did make a hell of a difference back in the day.
Is there any relationship progress at all?
I liked Ellen so much in the beginning but shes being a complete moron about this shit. I feel like cheering for Lim or Mira just because they are so much less nonsensical about him.
Still sounds better than the current King the Vanadis have.
At that point the princess didn't have guards, she was staying in the village when the one invasion army came and tried to flee.
He does take his count position seriously. It's just a small territory that can manage itself for the most part, so he has a lot of free time.
I do wonder when someone will fix the blatant translation mistakes. Like how Tigre isn't an earl, the maid's name isn't Titta, the king of Zhcted's butchered to fuck name, etc. The sad part is I'm 100% sure the translator's been made of aware of these and for some reason chooses to keep the shit versions.
Amnesiaarc wasn't bad.
It feels like absolutely nothing has happened for the last two volumes.
How many times is Tigre going to be magically teleported around the country before something can get resolved?
The only redeeming part has been dere Elizavetta.
Lim and Mira are indeed much better than Ellen. I think Mira only got the news that he died though didn't she?
Yeah, I know katakana and hiragana. I was mostly being sarcastic since 26 English caracters is easier than Japanses, mostly katakana since there's more similar looking characters. English as a language is harder but the alphabet is super easy since most look different except for like 4 characters.
>Is there any relationship progress at all?
Not really any major developments. The reason being is that they're nobles of different countries, and they're of different ranks. Elen's like a duchess, and Tigre's a lowly count. And Tigre wants to focus on mending his territory from all the fighting. They take all these into account.
>English as a language is harder
I disagree. Our grammar system is more complicated and we have a larger vocabulary in general, but even bad grammar can still get the point across in English. Having spaces and proper noun indications are a giant fucking help, too.
I found the whole "lol you use a bow? what a fucking dweeb, get rekt loser" to be kind of corny, but besides that the first volume was pretty good, still haven't gotten around to reading the rest of it though
>lol you use a bow? what a fucking dweeb, get rekt loser
They did take that a little far, but what legend of knighthood has the knight using a bow?
Bows were still recognized as extremely useful back then, though.
>Cant do shit against bees.
What CAN defeat bees?
Fuck Absolute Duo.
Magika no Kenshi to Shoukan Maou anime when?
Just have to believe.
I would settle for someone translating the LN
Oh good, I've been looking forward to thi-
>Boretsu Pirates director
>director responsible for one of most boring anime of all time; responsible for Prince of Darkness too
>notable for butchering source material
He's one of the worst people you could get
>there are still people defending this shitty show
Brought to you by the mastermind behind:
>Bodacious Space Pirates
They couldn't make it worse if they tried.
Vandis if handle right will be good, so just Vandis and NGNL.
Mahou Sensou, Dragonar and Blade Dance be shit though.
>actually thinking NGNL was anything more than mediocre
Why everyone treat dragonnar as shit? It has great pacing and an actual end. The story was cliche but they handle it pretty well by stick on the main source. The negative part probably they added more tentacles.
I did, didn't like it or dislike it. Avdocha and the maids were delicious though.
It was tedious to watch, but as various anons have said it doesn't help that the source material is terrible to begin with.
>liking a show with predictable outcomes, Stu MCs and blatant half-assed pandering
I think we can be certain the source material will be butchered, but it won't happen in the way you want it to anon.
ZA FUURU did poorly and M3's a complete disaster (I actually really like the show itself, but they mishandled it badly), but almost everything else they've done in the last few years has actually sold decently at worst.
I really like the character design they gave Vanadis, at least they nailed this
..wait a sec I'm pretty sure it's Yumiko Hara's designs, I hope this doesn't mean the new Muv Luv anime got canceled ?
Maybe I will pick this up.
But I also remember a lot of bitching for Mouretsu.
Also the key art is showing characters that don't appear until way later, I don't see them following shit even if it's 2 cour
Not to mention the kind of battles the LN focus on isn't exactly popular and easy to animate
This spell disaster ;_;
>>liking a show with predictable outcomes, Stu MCs and blatant half-assed pandering
I like being pandered too, outcomes where predictable but it was about how they won which made it enjoyable.
How is it?
I remember reading the first chapter way back, and liked the idea of the MC getting a shield.
Will the author ruin it by giving him a weapon?
How will this develop?
It's the story of a boy that can only guard and hadouken twice a day.
Lealith a best.
The new one stepped it up a bit but I still can't like it. The balloons are simply irritating.
Right, because what we need right now is MORE "magical academy adventures".
I should make a list for this shit, at this point I'm sure it's in double digits.
Where's my Dungeon Encounter anime?
I don't mind them personally, seeing as I'm more than acquainted with the artist's works.
>Where's my Dungeon Encounter anime?
Volume 5 would be a pretty good place to end the anime. Plenty of cliffhangers and ends on a high note.
Because this is the type of people who post in /a/ >>110713055 >>110712822
ADD kids who just want action and battle shounen bullshit bitching about the harem aspect on a harem series, heh, they even complain about "pandering" because it seems to affect their christian believes in some way, the show have nice characters and interaction, comical scenes, it's lighthearted and just a lot of fun?, it's shit, muh plot and battles is more important bro.
Didn't expect that; I was more prepared for Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, or has it already an anime announcement?
I looked through the MF twitter again just now, and on all the advertisements that Absolute Duo and Vanadis appeared on, Gakusen Toshi Asterisk also featured. I can't fathom why they would give it some hype and then not announce anything.
Move on dude. New artist have best Tigre. Anime Tigre seems great too.
> Absolute Duo
> Weapons made from the user's soul
What happens if they break?
